Emergency Surgery Penrose St. Fransis

Dr. Zimmer performed an emergency bowel resection on me after my large bowel had perforated. He was very thorough in discussing what he would be doing during the procedure prior to my surgery. Post surgery he spent ample time speaking with me about how the surgery went and future options I have. He did not rush through his assessment and did not treat me like I was just a number that as a patient we often times see. He is a very compassionate Dr which can be hard to find. His expertise shows in his attitude and performance. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a surgeon.

Doc with a "God-complex"

The rudest, arrogant doctor I've ever been to. He's one of those doctors who has a "God-complex."
